Ultimate French Toast is easy to prepare & delicious. The presentation is impressive. It is forgiving and even travels well for brunches on the run in an aluminum disposable pan. Enjoy.

Top with a variety of toppings. For example, our B&B favorite is mixed black, blue & strawberries with peaches warmed, with a powdered sugar dusting, toasted almonds & a fresh sprig of mint from the garden. My childhood favorite is the way my mom served it…a fresh squeeze of lemon juice & lots of powdered sugar.
